About this title

Synopsis:

Up to now, ritual has been under-utilised for studying human behaviour. This book narrows the gap in our understanding of the social causes and consequences of our actions by focusing on the ritualised behaviours that define much of our daily lives. Knottnerus breaks new ground by comprehensively describing structural ritualistic theory. He shows how structural reproduction has occurred throughout the world, how rituals can be strategically used and how power can influence rituals, and how the disruption and reconstitution of ritual is of crucial importance for human beings. This book shows that ritual provides a missing link in sociology and helps us better explain the extreme complexity of human action and social reality.

About the Author:

J. David Knottnerus is Professor of Sociology at Oklahoma State University. He recently coauthored Elder Care Catastrophe: Rituals of Abuse in Nursing Homes (Paradigm 2010).
